I would HIGHLY recommend you get as much training in as possible.

The route is pretty hardcore.

Having ridden the route (on a lighter bike) and having been involved in the recce for the Quest, I would suggest taking Andrew`s  recommendation seriously.

I'm going to be getting a days worth of saddle time this Sat, just an endurance run on gravel, technical and sand.. riding the parklands bush. If any of the semi finalists wish to get some training in feel free to contact me and we can meet up

The last 2 weeks has seen a flurry of activity .. the situation just got real

28 hardcore adventure riders with big personalities are about to descend on Kaleo Guest farm just outside Ceres..

The last 2 weeks has been training, training and more training, saddle time on an Africa Twin to master rocks, sand and everything in between while trying not to pick up any injuries. Besides a strained shoulder and elbow on my left arm and a bent finger on my right hand everything went excellently. 3 other semi finalists joined me and the Parklands bush lads.. lead by Wild Dogs very own @Crossed-up  to brush off any last min nerves with trail & sand riding in 31 degree heat in full gear over the weekend..  much fun was had as we pushed ourselves on the big bikes.

Sat we had to do a quick covid test to submit to Specialised adventures.. we really appreciate the extent and efforts the crew are going to in order to keep all contestants safe.

Tonight is final packing and prep with the start of the semi finalist bootcamp starting at 9am on Tuesday

Here we go go go  :thumleft:

Day 2, Long day, started early and not nearly finished yet.

Skills and tests and lots of getting to know each other. The regional qualifiers created a seriously good pool of semi-finalists and it's going to be very hard to pick the best 14. It's a very diverse but there are no weak apples at all!

Lovely group!
